Summer/Beach Week

We began home school on August 3, 2015. this theme was extended over two weeks since it was a combined and that’s how it fit into our schedule-best part of home school!

I chose the summer/beach to begin with because we are still in the heat of the summer. I figured that my son would be able to make the connection to it. Another awesome benefit of picking the beach is that we live near one. So field trips are fun!
